Michigan women’s soccer beats Bowling Green in first round of tournament

On Friday night, the Michigan women’s soccer team (16-3-3 overall, 6-2-2 Big Ten) faced Bowling Green (11-7-3, 8-2-1 MAC) for the second time this season in the NCAA College Cup. The results were no different the second time around.

The second-seeded Wolverines came away with a big 3-0 win to take them into the second round. Michigan began this tournament as a top-eight national seed for the first time in the program’s history.  

Michigan came out strong and dominated possession from the onset, keeping the ball in the Falcons’ half. The Wolverines took an early lead with a goal by senior midfielder Meredith Haakenson in the 18th minute after a mess of deflections in the box. It was Haakenson’s third goal of the season.
